Rereading a Book

I still read books despite the Internet’s many distractions. And when I finish a good book, I’ll usually reread it as soon as I’m done. I mentioned that to a friend and he looked at me like I’m an alien. He never reread a book in his life. If he read it once, he’s already read it, so what’s the point of reading it again? You read it again because you like the story. You read it again to see character development and to spot clues and themes and symbolism. You watch a movie again if you like it. You listen to a song again if you like it. The more you like something, the more you want to experience it. Rereading a book should be no exception.

The Simpsons: Tapped Out (game)

If you’re a Simpsons fan with an iPhone or iPad, do yourself a favor and download The Simpsons: Tapped Out game. It’s kind of like Mafia Wars but with Simpsons characters. You start with Homer and Lisa and gradually start adding more characters and start building up Springfield. There are missions with storylines and dialog so you’re not just clicking and tapping mindlessly. There is a little bit of a plot. It’s a social game too. You can visit your friend’s Springfield and steal his money and vandalize his buildings. The only problem with the game is that it’s very addictive. You will sit by an outlet with your iProduct plugged in so you can keep playing. It’s a great way to kill time. And it’s free too. Free is always good.
